This book is an English translation of Mahipati's Marathi text "Bhakta Vijaya" which records the legends of Indian saints, irrespective of their difference in caste, community, creed, language and place of origin. What little knowledge we have on
the Saints of Maharashtra comes mostly from the two books, Bhakta Vijaya and Bhakta Lilamrita, written by Mahipati (1715 - 1790) who lived in Tharabad, about 35 miles from Ahmadnagar, Maharashtra.

"Bhakta Vijaya" contains soul-stirring stories of several saints including Jayadeva, Tulsidas, Matsyendranath, Gorakhnath, Jnaneshwar, Eknath, Tukaram, Namdev, Janabai, Gora, Kabir, Rohidas, Narsi Mehta, Ramdas, Sena, Mirabai, Bhanudas, et al
Bhakta Vijaya has been translated into almost all prominent Indian languages. It has been a source of inspiration to millions of devotees and has been used for daily reading and Harikatha all over India for more than 300 years.
